Cesc Fabregas is in contention for a starting place in the Euro 2008 final after David Villa sustained an injury in the victory over Russia in Vienna´s Ernst Happel Stadium.

Villa suffered a muscular problem while taking a free-kick and was replaced by Fabregas, with the Arsenal midfielder setting up two goals in the 3-0 win played during an electrical storm in the Austrian capital.

Spain coach Luis Aragones admits playing with five midfielders and Fernando Torres in attack played a huge role in the victory in which Xavi, David Guiza and David Silva got the goals, saying: "With Cesc we had another midfielder and it was difficult to control. I know how well he can perform, he is a great player like others in our squad."
